Event Overview

Originated in Japan in the 1970s, Karaoke has exploded in popularity not only in Japan but around the world as a fun pass time. Being the birthplace of Karaoke, Japan has been called a karaoke sanctuary and “LIVE DAM presents Nippon World Karaoke Grand Prix Cosplay”takes great pride in the fact that the fusion of Anime Songs and Karaoke is Japanese Culture.
Usually an international championship would mean many languages, but this time we have made the regulation that all participants must sing an Anime song in the original language, Japanese, in hopes to spread the Japanese culture of Karaoke and Cosplay around the world.
